Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation Gala “Through the Years” Set for Jan. 18, 2020

FORT BEND COUNTY, TX — Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation invites you to save the date for its 21st annual gala “Through the Years” set for Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020. The Founders’ Ball is a signature event for the Fort Bend County social calendar, and this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever.

The Gala will honor Kathy Huebner, a long-term board member who spearheaded the very first gala twenty-one years ago. Kathy’s commitment to the arts in the community, and specifically to the SLCAF, is exemplified in this year’s theme “Through the Years.”

This year’s entertainment will be presented by the Ridge Point High School Chamber Choir and the Dulles High School Viking Theatre Company. A live auction will also add excitement to the evening’s festivities, with James Patterson doing the honors as auctioneer. Auction highlights include a Martini Night at the Museum, hosted by Doug and Susie Goff; a deep sea fishing trip for four; and a goldendoodle puppy (born 9/8/19) from Goldendoodles of Sugar Land donated by Cathy Stubbs.

Esteemed sponsors of the evening include the Amy and Gary Becker Foundation and Fort Bend Financial.

“The Sugar Land community and people like this year’s honoree, Kathy, have been the driving force behind the Foundation’s success,” said Tim Stubenrouch, SLCAF board president. “We appreciate the commitment to the arts shown by the culturally-minded individuals and businesses in our great community. We look forward to celebrating our long-standing relationships with all of you on January 18.”

Proceeds will benefit the mission and goals of the SLCAF, which include continued improvements to the Sugar Land Auditorium, the city’s oldest public space, and the continued support of the arts in Sugar Land.

Gala sponsorship opportunities are still available, as are tables and individual tickets for the “Through the Years” gala. For more information, email Tickets may be purchased online at
